Discover Wines Kamloops has been embraced by the community!” says owner Tracy Gray. “There have been two full page articles in the local papers, two radio interviews and lots of media attention.”

On Monday, May 6, the sister store to Discover Wines Kelowna had its grand opening in Kamloops to much acclaim. “People are flocking in droves to check out the new store in town and the response has been phenomenal,” says Tracy. 

Although the grand opening for Discover Wine Kamloops was May 6, it officially opened its doors April 24. Visitors are apparently giving hugs to the staff. They’re also enjoying the new wine tasting counter, a unique concept to the Thompson area where there are so few wineries in close proximity.

“Kamloops has been such an underserviced market for BC wine, BC cheese and wine-related home entertainment items that visitors are really loving it,” says Tracy. 

Many people have already joined the Discover Wines Kamloops Wine Club and in such a short time, the store already has regulars! 

The award-winning Discover Wines Kelowna has been the #1 VQA wine store in terms of sales in British Columbia since it opened July 22, 2003. The one-stop-shop offers wine sampling, and acts as a wine information centre for locals and visitors. Upwards of 600 BC wines are featured at any given time. 

Discover Wines Kelowna will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer with lots of activities.
